Entomological Horticulture

Horticultural Entomology and Entomological Horticulture are distinct yet parallel:
Horticultural Entomology studies biological and ecological principles and management concerns for insects affecting horticulture and applies information for identification, monitoring, and pest management. Such sustainable praxis works to increase economic and social values of plants and intergenerational industry while defending and improving the environment. Horticultural Entomology commonly monitors insects as either pests according to production hindrance or beneficials according to production assistance; performs biological, chemical, cultural, and mechanical controls contingent on action thresholds.

Entomological Horticulture studies biological and ecological principles and management concerns for horticulture affecting insects and applies information for conservation, preservation, and regeneration of ecosystem services, including decomposition, pest regulation, and pollination. Such sustainable praxis works to harmonize economic and social values of insects and intergenerational growth while defending and improving environmental complexity. Entomological Horticulture suspends pests/beneficials dyads according to precautionary principles that maintain the integrity of use and non-use values from biologically diverse and resilient ecological communities; collaboratively performs transdisciplinary ecoregion-specific habitat enhancement and restoration through systematically sustainable design, installation, and maintenance.
